Simone Rocha x HM Wishlist: Should I Buy This?

The Simone Rocha x HM collaboration comes out at HM on March 11.  The pieces are beautiful - playful and statement-making but still feminine and elegant - which are the exact words I want to describe my own style and wardrobe. 

Prices, per, range from $7.99 to $349. 

For most purchases I'm making, I'm challenging myself to write down three ways I would style each potential new piece that I would be adding to my closet.  This doesn't always work when I'm making impulse purchases for things I think might sell out (see: Hill House Home nap dresses), but so far I think it has been actually stopping me from buying things I don't need or won't wear. 

Statement Puff Sleeve Trench Coat

While the price of this coat will be determinative, my jaw dropped as I was scrolling through the announcement of the collection and saw this trench.  I LOVE a good trench (even though I only have one).  It's a great light weight layer that is good for almost every season (if you live in California) and can make you look more put together without very much effort. 

This is obviously a huge statement, that would be a real "fashion" element to add to my otherwise basic (in comparison) wardrobe.  But how would I wear it? 

1) with a white button up, black leggings, and my black chain detail Vince Camuto combat boots 

2) with my teal Stine Goya dress underneath, and white AF1s

3) with a black turtleneck, black slacks, black ballet flats and a black beret

Black Sheer Floral Applique Shift Maxi Dress

Pink Crystal-Detail Translucent Sunglasses

I love these.  They give serious Gucci/Elton John vibes but with the cat eye that I prefer in my sunglasses. 

Double Bow Rhinestone Headband

Oh yes. As a former/current Blair Waldorf stan, I need this. I have recently been building my headband collection back up (after throwing away almost all of them when moving out of my freshman dorm) and this is the perfect unique accent to add to my collection.  I will say, I hate headbands that just have metal bands like this one, because they are the most uncomfortable on my gigantic head. 

I will be setting an alarm on March 11 to see what I can snag!
